Below the hilly headland at the northern boundary of Dublin Bay lies the small fishing village of Howth. An angler’s dream; cod and ray are commonly caught here as fishing trawlers weave in and out of the harbour. All the while, restaurants along the seafront serve up the catch of the day to hungry hikers fresh off the Howth Head walk...
One of the highlights of the beautiful Malahide is its castle and Demesne. It used to belong to the Estate of the Talbot's of Malahide, and is located just a short walk from the Malahide Village and train station. Parts of the Demesne
Originated in the 12th century, and its grounds are over 270 acres (1.2 km squared) of field and forest covered parkland.
